“Serving the Maya – the Maya Serving Us: a Strategy for Mutual Benefit”
Maya Heritage Community Project
Pastoral Maya and the Maya Heritage Community Project at Kennesaw State University share the common vision of human rights in the Americas, and have worked closely together on projects since 2001. Projects completed together include four national conferences held at Kennesaw State; an edited book of 2004 – 2005 conference proceedings and essays; and the Maya Health Toolkit for Medical Providers held on the BRYCS website www.brycs.org
Currently we work together to construct a national network of Maya interpreters.
NATURE OF THE PROJECT
Service Learning, Participatory Action Research, Applied Anthropology, or Community Engaged University: the Maya Project might fit all of these models to some degree. Foremost we are friends and allies of Pastoral Maya. The Maya Project is a certified Returning Peace Corps Fellows/USA program, and currently has four Fellows connected to the project in various ways. http://www.kennesaw.edu/peacecorpsfellows
